The European Stability Initiative and Christoph Strässer, Federal Commissioner for Human Rights of the German government, invited senior European policy makers, parliamentarians, and human rights activists to discuss what different institutions – the Council of Europe, the European Union and international human rights organisations – must do to realise the vision of a Europe without political prisoners in the near future.

The conference opened on Monday June 2, with a panel on "A Europe with-out political prisoners – how to get there?"

On Tuesday June 3, the conference continued with three closed sessions: "Member states of the Council of Europe and the European Union and political prisoners – what can they do?," "The institutions of the Council of Europe and the European Union and political prisoners – what can they do?," and "The public and the role of civil society – how to be less reactive and more effective?" at the Swedish embassy in Berlin.
